Italian
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

I was in Florida visiting and choose Brio because I had heard it was a good place to go however my group of 9 were very disappointed as was I. The service was very slow, the food was mediocre. Our food came at different times so the waitress decided to take some back and when it came back it was cold and not tasty. I would not recommend to friends

We were désappointed because we expected to eat outside. Too bad We canot make any reservation for outside. We don’t like to eat inside because it is too cold and the music is too loud.

The theme of the evening seemed to be waiting. We had made reservations but yet still had to wait. They told us they were getting our table ready but they forgot about us. So we waited 15 minutes....
We also waited for small plates when we got our bread then waited for more bread (we had gotten 1 small basket for 6 people. -not enough for everyone).
Our food was good and well prepared. The wait for our deserts was a little long as well.
The atmosphere is nice but it is loud.

Everything was ok in general, however a little issue as we were 4 peoples and the waitress only wanted to one 1 bottle of wine at the time, this was a problem because one couple was having white and the other red. I also showed the waitress where the table next to us had 2 red bottles open at the same time for 4 peoples . I understand there may be regulations however same rule should apply to everyone.We are regular customers and going at least 1-2 times a week, so needless to say our friends were disappointed as they wanted white wine with their fish but had to settle for the opposite. We never had this issue before so looking for clarification, so we know what to expect next time.

Food and atmosphere were good. Servers were hurried. Meal was not timed correctly as the entrees came out before we were even halfway thru our appetizers. Maybe Saturday night is just not the best night to go.

We had scilian omelet and it was not good. Presentation was terrible. We have had better in Homewood suites Free breakfasts. And we were the second couple in the empty restaurant and it took almost 30 minutes before being served. Probably will not go there again. They also don’t serve any type of sandwich’s.

Food was very mediocre. I don't remember the food at Brio being so tasteless and salty. Bathrooms were not clean. As it's said, if the bathrooms in a restaurant are dirty, the rest must be......
This is an addition to my last review. The last time we ordered Pollo Caprese, mediocre. We thought that this was an off night, so we went back tonight. We ordered Lemon & Rosemary chicken, the dark meat was rubbery and tasteless, the white was over cooked and dry, apparently they have a problem cooking chicken properly. Looks like we won't be going back anytime soon.

This is a lovely restaurant with lots of outdoor seating and fans. Valet is unreasonable at $10. The service was very inconsistent, we had to ask twice for several things. Some of the service staff is great though! We will go back but just be patient

Maybe I wouldn't shut it down but I would definitely let them know of my first experience. I love the gulf stream casino area ! I've been to SEVERAL places in the plaza no problems! I wanted to scratch Brio off my list and thought it sounded like a nice place for my birthday dinner!! 🤦🏽‍♀️ Needless to say it started okay my reservation was at 830 I walked in like 835 they sat us immediately which was fine. I chose to sit outside the hostess guy was pleasant! the waitress came for our drink orders about 10 mins in right after someone brought us bread, ok... took her like 15 to come back with the drinks I asked a few things about the menu she was informative helped me decide I ordered calamari for before the entre. She told us it shouldn't take to long; I forgot to order a alcoholic drink; it took us 10 mins just to track her done to put that in.... at this point it's 15 mins past 9 it took her like 20 more mins to come back and say that she still was waiting for calamari .. like another 10/15 more mins past & someone came with the calamari.. now it's like 945.. bruh at this point all surrounding tables who we seen get bread then get food has completely eaten their food or have started to leave and we still were waiting for our food... 5 mins AFTER my boyfriend got up from the table to go complain & (AT 10pm) they brought us my Salmon and PLAIN pasta and his rosemary chicken! I felt bad for our waitress and was put in an akward situation where I felt tried on my birthday! Unacceptable.

The food was of a very poor quality . Nothing had any taste. Having been there many times in the past I never would have expected that experience.
I was dining with my adult children and two grandchildren so I did not return the food which I regret not doing! Almost $200 wasted.

Meal was finally served one and a half hours after it was ordered. It arrived cold and mushy. Inedible.

Credit to the manager, she was aware of the problem, came to our table on her own, apologized, and removed most of the charges from the bill.

An unfortunate experience. I have been a long time patron of Brio and not sure that I will ever go back.

The experience ruined our evening as rather than enjoy the night, we kept looking to see when our food was coming and finally when it did arrive, was inedible.

Food was great, but service was terrible! We waited 15 minutes for our drink order to be filled then 30 minutes for our appetizers. Yet I hadn’t put my fork down from eating my Crab Cakes, sorry only one crab cake, and our main course arrived. As I mentioned before, food was really great.

Some terrific new dishes. Grilled salmon was excellent as was Zabligione and Berries for dessert. However, service left something to be desired. Waiter was clearly overwhelmed by number of people he was serving. The noise level is moderate but still loud. Outdoor seating was lovely.

The food was average -- I think a little better than olive garden. The service was not great. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and the waiter brought the check without asking if we wanted dessert (!). It was a little slow. And unfortunately the meal (chicken with a lemon sauce) tasted like something you will get in a first class cabin on a transatlantic flight. Otherwise, the appetizers and wine were nice.
